Nets Can't Close Out Sixers

The Nets held a 6 point lead with 1:10 left in the game, but after Philadelphia cut the lead to two, Richard Jefferson and Alonzo Mourning eached missed a pair of free throws in the last 20 seconds, and Allen Iverson tied the game with 7 seconds left. The 76ers scored the first 7 points of overtime and went on to a 108-100 win, their first since opening night. Jefferson led all scorers with 33 points, and Eric Williams seemed to come out of his slump with 17. Rodney Buford provided 15 off the bench, including 11 in the 4th quarter. Jason Collins played just 5 minutes with an ankle injury suffered Tuesday night.
